Possibility of a Two Place Jet Flea of Sort.
Design No. 14 - Originally sketched 11-30-1997
on vellum.
A unique longitudinal stability from
the delta planform.
Design Concepts provides interesting views of preliminary aircraft designs
that can be referred to if you are considering building a Flying Flea style or a
short coupled tandem wing aircraft.

There are a few conventional ones shown here as a matter of interest. Most of
the designs presented have had a preliminary weight and balance completed
to justify pursuing further work. All are worth pursuing.

Multiple views have also been developed (top, front, auxiliary) for most of
them, as is necessary for weight and balance.
A few multiple views will be
added from time to time.
Each design is presented as a small thumbnail photo. Click on each one to see
a larger view.
Any questions can be referred to the "
Contact Us" tool bar link at the left to
submit email.

Plans are not available for any aircraft shown here. The designs are presented
to introduce the endless variations that can be created in hope that you do
study the variations that you may want to include in your own design.

A message and nice photos from Graham Priest

The pictures below Flea that was one Frenchman's life work.  It started out as a two seater
with a small Citroen engine and 3/4 " square tubing fuselage. As you can imagine there
were certain power to weight issues.  And the engine was changed to a VW four cyl. Neither
of these engines had a reduction gear, so the power issues were not resolved.  The builder
even carved his own tri-pale propeller!
Even the wing struts were steel tube. (following Mignet's distrust of Ally tube.)
When the builder came to register the a/c with the French aviation, it was too heavy for a
single seater- which was what he had changed it too.  So he had to go two seater again, by
fitting a tandem seat behind the pilot.  Only stuff like this could happen in a place like
France. Here is another picture of the cabin.

Here is another picture alongside the Black Butterfly HM293.
Hope it maybe gives you some inspiration? Sorry to clog up your H/Drive.

I have just heard that in UK all single seaters empty weight less than 300 Kgs are to be
de-regulated.  No more Section S  air worthy issues - thank God! At last!
I hope you like my little collection of photos
P. S. Must add my beautiful Bifly to your collection- sorrie!

Being 6'2" I found it very uncomfortable inside. The only thing in it's favour are the wings-
they were(are) beautifully made, and both sets folding.
Well ! What do you think you see
on this design?
